    Wow, wonderful find and capture; I’ve never seen one with this colouration before!

  • Thanks Daniel…I think perhaps this is a male as I have witnessed this species mating three times this past Summer and the darker ones like this one are a bit smaller and always on top of the larger all yellow ones.

    Superb capture Gary…did you use your external flash on this one?

  • Thanks very much and yes the Canon 580 EX fired at -1 compensation for this shot.
